The ARTAS procedure is a minimally invasive solution for hair restoration, which uses digital imaging and robotic precision to harvest viable hair for transplantation.

Unlike the traditional methods of hair restoration, which require removing a band of tissue from the back and side parts of the scalp; this procedure does not leave any linear scar after surgery and does not need any stitches or staples to close the wound. Recovery time is very short so you can resume your work and your daily activities as soon as possible.

Traditional methods include the harvesting of hair from patches that resulted in an awkward appearance once extracted and once implanted.

In the ARTAS procedure, the robot harvests hairs in their natural groupings and then transplants them individually. That way of hair transplantation provides you with a fuller look of your head.

The newly transplanted hair grows naturally in stages. It takes three months after the procedure to be able to see new hairs that will continue to increase over a period of full year.

Recovery time with the ARTAS procedure is less than most surgical procedures.
